“We are very happy to be working once again with Lightning Entertainment, continuing our successful relationship with this ingenious, high octane thriller,” High Fliers head of acquisitions Duncan Stripp said, adding that the company planned an October 2012 release.

“We are thrilled to continue our strong relationship with High Fliers,” Lightning’s vp of international sales Mathilde Epstein said. “Their enthusiasm and support for this movie matches our own and we are excited for them to bring it to UK audiences.”

High Fliers negotiated the Elevator deal with Empress Road after the companies previously brokered a deal on war thriller Snow & Ashes.
